hi! Here is my card for the SPCC Finally Friday challenge. This week was hosted by Heidi, an SPCC Diva, and her challenge to us was to create your own embellies from household items. Ooooh...I love adding something unusual and "free" (since I already own it, it is free, right?!?) to my cards! Everyone head on over to check out all the other fun entries and ideas! http://spcolorcombos.blogspot.com/2009/07/its-finally-friday-at-spcc.html My homemade embellies are the crossword puzzle which was cut from the local paper and my Dollarama chipboard, which was peeled and inked with Craft Ink (up close they look like suede they are so soft). I realize that's pushing the household items thing a bit, but truly...if you could see my craft area, you'd realize chipboard is a household item for me! LOL! (as I am sure it is for the rest of you out there in papercraft land!) The second challenge this was made for, is Jen DelMuro's sketch challenge at her "I Heart to Stamp" site.
